Teachers on Individualization: The Way We Do It.
Shiman, David A., Ed.; And Others
This volume reports experiences in individualizing and opening classroom instruction of elementary teachers in the League of Cooperating Schools (18 Southern California School districts). Written for teachers by teachers, it offers specific details and advice to aid both the new and the experienced teacher with the organizational and technical skills needed for individualized instruction. Each contributor explains (1) program initiation, (2) program maintenance and learning monitoring, and (3) evaluation. Discussions cover such topics as coping with time and space usage, decisionmaking procedures, changing student and teacher roles, and curriculum guidelines. Examples of room arrangements, daily schedules, learning contracts, record cards, and evaluation forms enhance the text. A selected bibliography on individualizing instruction is appended. (MM)
